Talking hello from me

Hi i just thought i would introduce myself.
I am a sahm mum with 3 children. My eldest(8) has ADHD and is on Concerta, which is working great for her.
My son (6) has ADHD and ODD and is on strattera right now which is also working great, not doing too much for his hyperactivity though.
I also have a little girl of 2 who is completly different to the other two, very laid back and flexible.

I have ADHD also and have been taking Concerta for two months now. It has worked minor miracles for me.

My wonderfull husband works away for 6 months at a time and has just left again after the new year.

So other than the small zoo of pets i have thats about it.

Hi, Capri, from the geographic center of the U.S. My husband was born in London and his old man was a Brit. We have travelled "back" many times over the years.

I hope you will find information and support here. I look forward to your posts. Welcome.

Welcome! It sounds like you have your hands full. I have two boys also, no little girls yet though.

Hiya Capri, welcome to the ADD Forums!

Just to verify, you have Strattera available in the UK now?

Thanks for the big welcome, Its a lot warmer than i am used to,lol
Ace i live about 40miles from London, it really is a small world isnt it.
Big, yes we have had Strattera in the UK now since the begining of 2003 as far as i know. Its been the best thing ever for my son, rebound effects and loss of appetite were terrible on the Concerta and Ritalin.
I am hoping to get my oldest daughter onto it soon as well as her appetite has fallen off alot since starting the Concerta. Other than her appetite though she is doing tremendously.

Thanks again everybody.
